Default song variables for irc script

I've used BSPlayer for a while on windows because it is a pretty good player, and faster/less buggy than VLC, for example. Recently on linux I've been playing with BMP (Beep Media Player), a media player based on XMMS--hopefully you guys have heard of it.
BMP has a plugin that allows the user to run a shell command when a song is changed, using the different song variables; for example %n would be the song name, and %l would be the song length in milliseconds. My shell command would put 3 variables into a file, and then I could write a python script extracting the variables and turning it into a "now playing" IRC script.
I could post a pic of the effect and how the BMP plugin looks if you want.

Basically, could you make such a plugin for BSPlayer? Preferably w/ the ability to extract minutes and seconds rather than just milliseconds?
